A divided Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board passed an emergency resolution to kick the Minnesota State Patrol out of park headquarters, where troopers would take breaks and eat lunch.
Commissioner Londel French, who authored the resolution, advocated ending the Park Board's relationship with the State Patrol, the Star-Tribune reports.
"Over the last week or so we've been having a lot of unrest in our city," French said. "A lot of the folks that have been at the heart of putting that unrest down or stifling the protesters have been, in Minneapolis, the Minnesota State Patrol."
The State Patrol has been helping other law enforcement agencies police protests in Brooklyn Center after former police officer Kim Potter shot and killed 20-year-old Daunte Wright on April 11.
